You are correct on both points. Definitely had Gillingham affiliations.

This Saturday at 10:30 is from 1st November 1980. The info on Virgin says its Aston Villa v Coventry but that's also the day we beat Moan Utd with a Perer Nicholas goal so worth a view.
Tuesday 12 October is from 29 March 1980 again against Moan Utd. Unfortunately we lost that one.
Wednesday 13 October is from 5 April 1980 against the weed. Might want to give that one a swerve.
Saturday 15 October is allegedly from 15 December 1979 but the match advertised is our last home game of the season v Liverpool. They have shown this previously with the erroneous date.

Gillingham had a fanzine called Brian Moore's Head Looks Uncannily Like London Planetarium

He did indeed, when I played football for Petts Wood later on in the 80ís, his son Simon was our goalkeeper for short spell

Which I think was a line taken from a Half Man, Half Biscuit song.

Back in mid 80s, a mate of mine was a big Gills fan and wrote a couple of articles for that fanzine. He had also just taken up amateur referring. Years later, I noticed he was the linesman in a Gills game broadcast live on Sky and was definitely favouring the Gills!

Considering how bad a season we had, we were on the big match a lot. Although it feels quite sad watching it now as the team of the 80ís were gradually drifting away, no sansom, swindlehurst or burridge at this point, but I remember strangely enjoying that season, and I liked Clive Allen:eek: The enthusiasm of youth I suppose and that Adidas kit still gives me orgasms, especially the sky blue away one

That kit was amazing, never ever been bettered.

We are the 2nd game on after, Aston Villa v Coventry.

I agree, the Hummel versions, especially the red away one came close though a few years later

I even liked the Red, White and black Adidas kit from 83/84 season. Very Man Utd.

He was a director at the Priestfield.

Watching the game v Man U I just couldnít help thinking little did we know, five years later Sir Steve would end up our manager.
My only regret with these old games, is we used to stand under the TV stand back then so I can never try and pick us out in the crowd

Just watched it. The one thing that stood out for me was that, even though it was only 18 months after the Burnley game, we were without Burridge, Sansom, Kember, Swindles, Hilaire & Murphy. I appreciate the latter two were watching from the stands.

I know you canít argue about the decision because we won the game, but hard to believe Hilaire and Murphy being dropped.

And Clive Allen

Presumably that was Ernie Whalley's last victory

Yes.

It only dawned on me the other day that he was our most successful manager out of 4 that season.
